Just a feature suggestion for the graphs, would it be possible to add rolling averages to the graphs so that you can quickly spot longer-term trends?

E.g. on the daily chart, show as bars the number of visits (or some other stat) and then as lines plot the rolling daily averages for the past week, month, quarter and year.

(The rolling average is recalculated every day so that yesterday's rolling average takes into account figures for the week/month/quarter/year up until yesterday.)

Just an idea and thanks for the great service.

Thanks :)

I've attached a screenshot of what I mean as it might sound a bit confusing to a lot of people.

* Weekly rolling average is the average number of visits per day over the past week.
* Monthly rolling average is the average number of visits per day over the past month.
* Quarterly rolling average is the average number of visits per day over the past quarter.
* Yearly rolling average is the average number of visits per day over the past year.

On the daily summary, the averages allow you to see at a glance how your daily stats are performing against the current week, month, quarter and year.

You can download the daily summary data in xls or csv format and produce any other kinds of reports based on that.

Sure, but that wouldn't be dynamic any more! :wink:
Errrr.... neither would Statcounter be if it had to make all manner of different reports all of the same stuff, and all with different colors and bells and whistles. It would grind to a halt I'm afraid. A very dynamic halt.

ok, no worries, they were just three custom indicators which could be plotted on the graphs. You should see the graphs on FT.com and other financial sites - they serve an incredible amount of traffic as well...

The FT's charts are well worth looking at, particularly on their 'interactive charting' the ability to create your own indicators and plot them on the graphs - look at rolling averages on the FT's site (you can define your own number of days and then plot multiple series with different rolling averages.)

Not sure if this link will work (if not click the interactive charting link for any equity), but here for example (if it wraps, the link ends with "searchOption=equity"):
http://markets.ft.com/tearsheets/pe...e=FTCOM&searchtype=equity&searchOption=equity

It would probably mean changing your charting library, but interactive charting would be a great addition to your site.

Anyway, thanks for listening and responding.
